Prosser, Welsh agree to contracts with Blues
Defenseman Nate Prosser and forward Jeremy Welsh have agreed to one-year contracts with the St. Louis Blues.

Defenseman Nate Prosser and the St. Louis Blues agreed to terms on a one-year, two-way contract, the team announced Monday via Twitter. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Prosser, 28, had two goals and eight points in 53 games for the Minnesota Wild last season. He was scoreless in 10 Stanley Cup Playoff games.

Prosser entered the NHL as an undrafted free agent and has three goals and 21 points in 126 regular-season games, all with the Wild.

The Blues also signed forward Jeremy Welsh to a one-year, two-way contract. Welsh had one goal in 19 regular-season games with the Vancouver Canucks last season, and 15 points (seven goals, eight assists) in 49 games with the Utica Comets of the American Hockey League. He has two points and 10 penalty minutes in 25 NHL games with the Canucks and Carolina Hurricanes, who signed him as a free agent in April 2012 after three seasons at Union College.

Quote of the Day

He's a winner. We want winners here, and he's a proven winner. He's won two Stanley Cups. He's 22 years old and been a big part of it. He's got all the right tools. He's got size (6-foot-1, 204 pounds) and strength. He's exactly what we were looking for. He's going to be a big piece of our team for many, many years to come.
